Product description

Product Description

The full-blooded version of the big-budget action adventure based on the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. The film, directed by Antoine Fuqua, attempts to place King Arthur within the historical context of his time (around 500 AD), and take into account many more historical and political facts of the era than previous interpretations of the legend. It also dispenses with much of the magic and fantasy that have shrouded events of the period, although Merlin (Stephen Dillane) does feature as a shaman who used his powers against the Romans. Clive Owen stars as Arthur, who, as England falls into chaos after the fall of the Roman Empire, gathers around him a band of brave knights, including Lancelot (Ioan Gruffudd), Galahad (Hugh Dancy) and Gawain (Joel Edgerton), who hope to defeat the invading Saxon armies and restore peace and order to their country. Keira Knightley co-stars as Guinevere.

From Amazon.co.uk

It's got a round table, some knights, and a noble warrior who rises to become King Arthur, but everything else about this revisionist legend is pure Hollywood. That's not such a bad thing if you enjoyed Rob Roy, Braveheart, Gladiator and Troy, and there's some intriguing potential in presenting the "real" Arthur (played by Clive Owen) as a 5th-century soldier of Rome, assigned to defend Roman-imperial England against a hoard of invading Saxons (led by Stellan Skarsgard in hairy villain mode). As revamped history and "archaeological findings" would have us believe, Guinevere (Keira Knightley) is a warrior babe in face-paint and Lancelot (Ioan Gruffudd) is a nonentity who fades into the woodwork. Never mind. Best to enjoy the harsh, gloomy atmosphere of Irish locations, the ruggedness of Owen and his hearty supporting cast, and the entertaining nonsense of a Jerry Bruckheimer production that strips battle-ready Guinevere down to leather-strap S&M gear while all the men sport full-body armor. Hail to the queen, indeed! --Jeff Shannon

'Arthur' and his 'Sarmatian' Knights have served their time, 15 years of
fighting for 'Rome'
however before freedom is finally granted they are ordered to complete one
further mission.
their task -- they are to travel north into the lands of the 'Woads' to
bring back the 'Pope's' favourite nephew who with his father lives in
an isolated outpost set deep inside 'Wode' territory.
the mission becomes even more dangerous because of a new threat posed by
invading Saxons.
at the outpost they find a compound walled up, among those left to perish
'Woad' 'Guinevere' ( who of course is freed by 'Arthur' )
the 'Saxon' army is not only a threat to 'Merlin's' people in the north.
it is also a threat to those south of Hadrian's Wall behind which the
'Roman' legions are withdrawing.
both those north and south of the Wall now have a common enemy........
the invading 'Saxon's'
perhaps there are one or two 'casting' issues on board however though a
a film of recent years it is an action-packed epic adventure surely well
worth revisiting.
if like myself you have interest in the legend of King Arthur and Camelot
perhaps the one film that closely follows the well known legend and well
worth seeing if you have not yet done so, is the movie 'Excalibur'

Love anything to do with the Arthurian legends me. Whilst almost nothing is really known about the Dark ages when 'King Arthur' is supposed to have lived, the stories made up are real ripping yearns, and this one is no different.

Well what a muddle this movie is, I watched this and Excalibur at the flicks and quite enjoyed Excalibur even though Merlin was well camped up in it but at least he was a central figure as you would like to expect and not like the so called Merlin in this naff movie who barely appears and has the charisma of a house brick and looks like he's just come back from a Glastonbury festival still drugged up, he casts no magic and couldn't put a spell on a house fly. The acting is pretty poor at best and most of them look uncomfortable in their roles especially Clive Owen and Guinevere the battling Woad who is a violent lunatic hacking half the Saxon army to pieces on her own its just ludicrous, how a handful of knights and a group of woads could destroy an Army like that is laughable, The director seems to have portrayed the Saxons as inept numptys who couldnt fight their way out of a paper bag, they land in Scotland with swords, sields and crossbolts which were not even around then and no other weapons of warfare and they all look pretty well fit and fed, a journey they would have had to make would have left them pretty worse for wear for a while and as for the knights, I love their loyalty, killing woads one minute then smashing the saxons in ally with the woads next, loyalty and honour eh!must admit the knight Bors (Bores) played by Ray Winstone did amuse me, the only thing that did in this poor film, just makes me laugh how he just cannot portay himself in any film without his Estuary English vowels. But it could pass a couple of hours on a wet Sunday afternoon for a laugh, nothing else.
